    "THE BEST MOVIE ABOUT THE ARTHUR MYTHOLOGY YOU WILL EVER FIND. Seriously. Don't even watch the new "King Arthur" movies coming out today because most them have warped the source material to make it more action packed and "relevant". Well. they're not relevant. Excalibur is relevant. Because it didn't stuck to the source material and became an epic movie without any gimmicks. That's how you make a classic folks."

    "The costumes and the setting of the film are definitely best describes the history and story of King Arthur. They really prepared the budget for this. Helen as Morgana is a perfect idea also!"

    "It's long, very arthurian, and quite possibly one of the best king arthur movies to have ever come out. It can be a bit slow at times but it has quite a deep story to tell."

    "Excalibur, in my opinion, is the best movie about King Arthur. No fancy CGI can replace the acting and the storyline."
